Trying to decide how to get food to Bali for 9 days. My flight from NY with a layover in PEK will take about 30 hours. Are there places in SIN that I can pre order food from for my trip? Will it cost a fortune?

Update. I spoke to the kosher shop and they said that they plenty of kosher food items, and that we can buy eveything that we need for Bali from them. They said that they have meat, lamb, chicken, cheese etc.

Dan wrote a really informative piece about Singapore with a lot of food tips and pics. Check it out by searching for his trip report.

Trying to plan out my Singapore trip a bit. We land on Friday at 7am and are on a 7pm flight on Sunday. Getting in and out will be with Singapore airlines. As will have a baby with us I booked the Sheraton before the rate changes in March, since we can't eat out on Shabbos either way.

I was thinking of going Friday morning to little India and the Arab quarter and then see Orchard st which is right near the  Sheraton. Motzei Shabbos (shabbos ends at 830) we would do the night safari. Sunday would go to Sentosa island, Marina bay sands hotel, and then Chinatown.

Am I missing anything? Should I do it differently? If Chinatown is not really worth seeing maybe I would take it out and do the Arab quarter and little India on Sunday to give my wife so breathing time after all the flying to get to SIN.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

She will be almost 5 months.

Seems like others have managed. How is the big question. If all you need is a room key maybe you can pay someone off to give you theirs for a few minutes.

If your wife is into that stuff, you might want to go to the Orchid Gardens. Really nice

It does look really nice thanks.

Is it hard to wheel around a stroller in Singapore?

Also my wife is devastated to learn that chewing gum is illegal there  :) We are going to SIN before the rest of our trip so that means no gum at all. What a wacky law!

Maybe you can sneak some razzles in for the rest of the trip since technically they aren't gum until you start chewing. :)
